he nicked the ending of a southpark ep.

otherwise very good show.

Damn, I was looking forward to RE5 finally. Guess it hasn't come in Australia yet :(

Pretty good, but Yahtzee spent too much time faffing about hiphop and how embarassing a culture it is. The idea of a CoD4 prequel was brilliant.

All around another great review.

Games like this make me wonder how the marketing people actually think, they have to know that merely slapping 50 cent on a game won't make it worthwhile. Then again, marketing managers are only slightly more evolved than bridge trolls, so that may explain some of it.

Nice ending : Then we can make a perfect world, but they don't know anything about work, the lazy nig-. Epic win. That bit should have had an orchestral song that filled the idea with beauty basically taking us to the beatiful world and then you drop the n bomb and we all laugh ourselves to tears.

ChocoFace:
oh the ending, i haven't laughed as hard in weeks.

This. I'm still laughing about it. Good job, Mr. Croshaw.

ROTF @ the ending
LOL @ the "ohhhhh ban me" post (and subsequent banning)

Oh I laughed so hard at the ending. Bloody perfect.

Your only kidding yourself. I thought you were supposed to be reviewing games and not social groups. I dont really want to hear your opinion on hip-hop, and i am even less interested in hearing your opinions of black people.

I've never seen such a blatant attempt at someone trying to convince themselves, and the rest of the world that they are not a racist. If you weren't it wouldnt have been an issue, you wouldn't even have mentioned it, and you would have just reviewed the game, instead of spending 50% of the time talking about black people and how your not racist.

But the sheer fact that there was a 'stereo typical hip hop black person', on the cover made you go on a ridiculous rant. Why should it be embarassing that 50 cent got discovered by Eminem? Are you even listening to yourself?

Im all for fun and games, and i lol'd at the ending that was genuinely funny (though black people would prob not agree), but still. Stop kidding yourself, and go out and socialise and broaden your horizons.

I'm loving the over the top plot for this game, contrary to what ZP said it does sound like the writers were taking the piss...

I literally fell off my chair laughing in the end.

I was thinking "this will be interesting" when I saw what game it was. And it was. Great and hilarious review/video. Especially the ending like everyone says.

wow, that ending was a tad bit edgy wasnt it?

Another cheap shot. If Yahtzee has a problem with Killzone 2, why doesn't he just come up with a review and say it? This is the second time that he has mentioned Killzone 2 to promote crappy games like House of the Dead Overkill and 50 cents. What I don't get is why is it that well thought out, polished games always get so much scorn, while games that are sloppily done and stupid get praises just because they admit to being stupid.If someone came up to you and admitted that he was a retarded jackass, would it make him any less of one because he admitted it? So because House of the Dead Overkill cussed and crassed it's way to fame that means we should be giving it awards and praises. Lots of people work their asses of to make a game that is polished and well done only to have it ignored. Then some idiot comes also and makes some half-ass piece of garbage and gets praises for being stupid, brainless and violent. Gamer logic astounds me to no end.

I think the main problem is he say's somethin' bout Killzone 2, the people who actually like it will call him a hack. Wich won't be to far from the truth, I guess his main idea is to piss off Killzone 2 fans just like he did with MGS fans, SSBB fans, Sonic fans etc. As for the crappy games getting better medals, well I guess it's either two things: 1. The less the game has you thinkin' the better Yahtzee belives it is or 2. The shittier the game is, the less he can bitch bout it, over hype the good points an then turn to a good game an bash the shit out of it.

<<<Not Racist haha took so long to pause it at the right time.

that last part was just like the southpark with Mr. Garrison when they scare all the black people out of town... haha if you've seen it you'll understand.

I thought that when he said it :P I thought that was particularly daring of Yahtzee ^^

My inner pollitically correct nagging bitch was made extremely confused, and is now hitting her head on the inside of my skull...

Kukul:
Mr Garrison did that first, but I still laughed hard.

As a matter of fact, it's from the British sitcom Father Ted.

*removed*

The whole thing was funny, but that ending just made it hilarious. You don't need me to say good work, but damn, I'm still laughing about that last bit.

And everyone who is on the edge about the ending...get over it, honestly, hes just making a joke.

I'm sure this is about 90% of the posts before me but damn, the last 10 seconds of the video had me in tears.

Blood in the Sand is actually a good game, even more so than Gears of War because the controls handle so much more smoothly. The game doesn't take itself too seriously, neither should people who play the game.

nice ending also didn't you know they have an identical chopper store there.

I can't say anything that hasn't already been said, so I'll just say BRAVO and leave it at that.

I loved the cut off at the end. Best joke ever. Also, loved the subliminal message that kept popping up.

Obvious troll is obvious.

Black people have a different sense of humour now do they? Racist!

What a heartwarming picture of yahtzee.

One of my favourite reviews so far.

damn good one xD

let's start a trend with not finishing sente......

Absolutely hilarious, love the flashing Not Racist sign and how it got cot off at the end =P

you look wrecked in your "im not racist" pic

nice review, but bad game.

Lower budget games, like Blood on the Sand here, that don't take themselves seriously are being more honest than big name games that think they're the second coming of Christ. Games like Killzone 2, Halo X, etc. all proclaim themselves 'art' before they're out the door and then turn out to be ho-hum, or at least not as great as promised. When a game doesn't get a lot of hype and doesn't pretend to claim to be 'art' but turns out to be fun it wins me over way more than an epic story filled with 'interesting' characters and excellent gameplay. A flawed game that admits its flaws is infinitely cooler than a game like Killzone, Halo, or Half-life.

Must... destroy... mankind... ah, wait that's another subliminal message I recieved earlier today. Sorry about that.

Nice one. Better stay out of places like New York and LA for a few weeks anyway though. Angry people there seem to want to get violent just about anytime anyone notices them. Though I don't see any of the ones stupid enough to think that was racist having enough money for a flight to Australia, so you should be ok.

Ho-ly Shit! How can u not mention that ending! hahaha!

The reason why he doesnt review it is too piss people like you off...im not joking, Yahtzee is possibly giggling with glee evertime someone posts something like this...

As a unemployed black gamer in this tough, hard to find a job economy, I'm severely offended by the comments mentioned at the end of the video.

I'm so kidding, it was funny (but risky....thought it isn't like he did this at the Apollo)
